Middle class incomes plunge as immigration surges

Congressional report confirms dire predictions

Wages of America’s middle class have dropped below 1970s levels as immigration has surged 325 percent, according to a new congressional report that puts to rest leftwing claims that native-born Americans are economically enhanced by greater immigration.

The nonpartisan Congressional Research Service (CRS) report studied immigration and middle class income from 1945-2013 and found that as immigration slowed between 1945 and 1970, American incomes increased. But when immigration expanded, the incomes of the bottom 90 percent of Americans went flat and then dropped beginning in 2000.

In the report to the Senate Judiciary Committee, the CRS confirmed that the foreign-born population of the United States surged 324.5 percent, from 9,740,000 to 41,348,066, from 1970 to 2013. The impact is not insignificant.

Competition for university placement and fewer jobs will increase as our elected representatives continue to ignore the crisis, as the influx of illegal invaders continues unabated.

Yet Barack Obama has virtually erased our southern border. Using executive orders  that even he declared were unlawful, (video) he has granted amnesty to millions of illegals, confident when they vote, they’ll show their appreciation by voting a straight Democrat ticket.

Additionally, he ignores reports of Islamist terrorists entering our country through our unguarded southern border.

Read the fact-filled report by Paul Bedard and the dismal economic predictions in the Washington Examiner. If you have concerns about America’s future and the lives your children and theirs will face, this is reading definitely worth your time.

U.S. Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-AL) a steadfast voice exposing amnesty schemes said it best back in 2014, “Never in recent memory has the divide between the everyday citizen and the political elite been as wide as it is now. A sovereign nation establishes rules about who can enter, work, and live within its borders. In every imaginable way, the President has worked to dismantle these rules -— on the border, in our courts, through our visa system, through our asylum system, through our exit-entry system. And with this planned executive action, the President proposes to scrub away what remains of these rules. And Senate Democrats will have been partners in its commission.”

Since then, it’s all too clear Republicans have been equally complicit, falling in line with Obama’s schemes as in Thursday’s confirmation vote of U.S. Attorney General Loretta Lynch who has acknowledged she will continue to support Obama’s policies. John McCain, standing for reelection couldn’t afford to be in the “yea” column, but his toadies Jeff Flake and Lindsey Graham voted with the unified Democrats.

Have you had enough yet?

    Not Representing AZ Voters =’s EVIL

    AZ’s Sen. Flake was asked about his vote on Lynch, this is is response, which is no great surprise to most in AZ and most don’t agree with him after his campaign comments in 12, however once again the Incumbent didn’t keep his word nor did McCain as still No Dang Fence and don’t believe they’ll ever really support Building one or Removing the problem, first by ending all Benefits to Illegals, Dreamers, Anchor Babies etc. take a look and let them and others in the GOP know what you think of being Betrayed.

    Sen Jeff Flake echoes former Gov Jan Brewer’s “”I believe that elections have consequences . . .” Medicaid Expansion phrases in responding to Dutton’s recent e-mail.
    Flake to Dutton on April 21: Thank you for contacting me about President Obama’s nominee for United States Attorney General. I appreciate receiving your comments on this matter. As you may know, on November 7, 2014, President Obama nominated Loretta Lynch to replace Attorney General Eric Holder. On February 26, 2015, the United States Senate Committee on the Judiciary voted to approve Ms. Lynch’s nomination by a vote of 12 to 8. I voted in favor of her nomination. I believe that elections have consequences and that elected presidents should be afforded a certain degree of deference in the presidential appointment process, particularly when the nominee is uniquely qualified. While I disagree with Ms. Lynch on a number of issues, including her views on the President’s executive action on immigration, she is nonetheless well-qualified for the position. Thank you again for contacting me. Please do not hesitate to do so again in the future. I also encourage you to visit my website, which may be found at flake.senate.gov.,

    You all Must Contact Senator Flake & McCain and let them know Elections do have consequences and hopefully 2016 & 2018 Will have a Consequence for Each of them Hopefully Retirement from Office.
    God Bless You All;

      “Exclusive — Empirical Vote Data Shows Democrats Still Control US Senate, Harry Reid’s Office Rejoices
      Senate Democrats still control the U.S. Senate, election results last November aside, an analysis of all the votes taken since Sen. Mitch McConnell (R-KY) took over as Majority Leader shows.

      In fact, with two minor exceptions, every single vote that has passed the U.S. Senate since the beginning of this Congress in January has passed with at least—usually more than—93 percent of support from Democrats.”

      “Making History: Senate GOP Vote with Obama at Record Pace

      Well, it appears that the entire outcome of the 2014 elections was one big exercise in election fraud. Except on a national scale it wasn’t the result of faulty or rigged ballot machines. It was the result of rigged candidates.

      In case you were wondering why it appears Republicans are constantly voting with Obama on one critical issue after another, just know that your eyes are not playing tricks.

      “E-mails reveal that staffers from McCain’s office met with IRS personnel for six hours, 11 days before Lerner’s public admission of “inappropriate” actions. Judicial Watch summarizes:
      “the interview covered, among other topics, how the IRS determines which groups to review, what actions are taken in connection with the IRS reviews, and how the laws and regulations are used to examine those groups.”

      This revelation served as chilling confirmation of a suspicion Tea Party groups had all along: they were under fire from both sides of the establishment in Washington, D.C. Republicans and Democrats worked together to crush their common enemy, actual conservatives.

      “McCain recently announced that he will run for re-election to the Senate in 2016.”

      Why Did Ted Cruz Miss the Loretta Lynch Vote?

      ******************************

      I read that he attended a fundraiser given by a wealthy couple in Dallas. Actually, it showed a photo of the invitation.

      Bad timing.

      • azgary says:

        sadly, ted cruz too is for amnesty, he talks a good game but his actions are no different than all the others,hes not even as “conservative” as Romney was on the issue. cruz by his own words apparently would have voted for the gang of eight bill if citizenship would have been removed :
        “What has not been as evident is what he supports: legal status for millions of people here already, while making it easier for immigrants to come here through the front door.”

        “Asked about what to do with the people here illegally, however, he stressed that he had never tried to undo the goal of allowing them to stay.
        “The amendment that I introduced removed the path to citizenship, but it did not change the underlying work permit from the Gang of Eight,” he said during a recent visit to El Paso. Cruz also noted that he had not called for deportation or, as Mitt Romney famously advocated, self-deportation.

      • Clair Van Steenwyk says:

        Looks like he wasn’t there and they’d pass her regardless, my issue with Sen. Cruz is his wanting to increase the H-1B visa program from 35,000 to 325,000 yrly. and we already have Americans & College kids without jobs who qualify for the high tech, no matter what Bill Gates says.

      • Fed Up says:

        The fact is they ALL know in advance what any vote count is going to be. None of this is conducted in a vacuum. They pose and posture for the hometown folks, but it’s all a sham. We are only conned because we allow ourselves to be. STOP reelecting these practiced charlatans.

        Señor Juan McAmnesty knew the vote he couldn’t afford to cast wouldn’t matter when he had Jeff the Flake and Lindsey Grahamnesty voting for Loretta Lynch’s “historic” confirmation.

    “Have you had enough yet?”

    obviously most have not since they continue to vote for those politicians who chose foreign invaders over American citizens, such as the az 5 amigos, flake, McCain and not to mention will be demanding we vote for whatever republican is nominated for president in 2016, when in fact all of the well known assumed candidates are for mass amnesty of some sort.

    if it is not illegals leaving the country it is amnesty, is devastating to American citizens and will lead to a permanent democrat voting majority.

    but the party and the politicians do not care, and neither do any of those who vote for the anti American citizens/pro amnesty politicians.

    oh, yeah right, lesser of two evils and stuff.

    people need to wake up to the fact that republican amnesty is no different than democrat amnesty, obamas amnesty is no different than mccains, which is no different than clinton,bush, paul, walker cruz or warrens (and all the rest, not going to name them all). and don’t be fooled by those arguments that legalization is any different than citizenship, all will end with the same net result eventually; a permanent democrat voting majority, the end of the middle class and our nation. Illegals leaving the country by choice or by force is the ONLY acceptable solution

    WND reports that the Obama administration is ‘strong arming’ cities into welcoming ‘new Americans’ with messaging programs on radio, television, and roadside billboards glorifying diversity and new immigrants. Some of the schemes are aimed directly at indoctrinating American children in schools and libraries.

    This is an example of the ads circulating in North Carolina sponsored by a group called “Welcoming America,” which was started in 2010 with seed money from the American hating Socialist billionaire George Soros. He now works with the federal government to influence and sway Americans’ attitudes toward the illegal invasion, which is all lumped together as “immigration,” though there is a massive difference between the two.

    True, unless you are a public sector sector employee w/ Cola and paid health and benefit package and escalating pension you likely are seeing no gains.

  6. Conservative Since Birth says:

    MacBeth – The old article on McCain and Soros will be sent to the AZ voters on my list. People need to be educated – they keep voting for the man. There’s also the Soros/Clinton/McCain love affair. All intermingled.

    • PV PC says:

      I’ll be joining you in sending links to both of the posts. it’s a sad commentary that people still need to be educated about McCain.

      John McCain is much more than the ‘Maverick’ he characterizes himself as, or the RINO label he scoffs at. He’s a deceitful and disreputable man who has his own self serving agenda and cares nothing about the people of the state of Arizona or this nation. It’s past time for him to be unceremoniously shown the door.

  7. SmallGovt says:

    Sessions is the only Senator who constantly speaks of the problems of illegal immigration on American workers plus the runaway government spending that is wrecking the future.
